Create Believable Characters from Head to Toe
Simple rigging will work for minor characters, but limitations of a simple rig can stop animatorsin their tracks if they need functionality that isn't there. Whether you're a professional CharacterTD or just like to create 3D characters, this detailed guide reveals the techniques you need to create sophisticated 3D character rigs that range from basic to breathtaking.
Packed with step-by-step instructions and full-color illustrations, Body Language walks you through rigging techniques for all the body parts to help you create realistic and believable movements in every character you design. You'll learn advanced rigging concepts that involve MEL scripting and advanced deformation techniques and even how to set up a character pipeline.
